Speaker of Parliament Anita Among on Spot for Misinformation

Speaker of the 11th Parliament Anita Among has been criticized over misinforming the 11th
Parliament during a recent sitting.

While speaking about the stampede at Makerere University that robbed a student of his life,
the Speaker Anita Among claimed the deceased student was a guild president aspirant who lost his life due to injuries sustained when he was stabbed with a broken bottle.

We pray for the deceased to Rest In Eternal Peace as the Lord strengthens his family and
friends during this trying time. Hopefully justice shall be served and the culprits shall be brought
to book for their crime.
